How Much is a Like, Comment or Follower on Instagram Worth to You?

If the concept of spending real money on a like, comment or follower on Instagram seems downright strange to you, then join the club. But a couple of new websites seem to be capitalizing on people who are willing to do just that. Both Buy Instagram Followers and Buy Instagram Likes sell packages of tens, hundreds and even thousands of likes, comments, and followers that desperate seekers of Instagram popularity can purchase given they’ve got enough dough to spend.

So how much is a like worth? According to Buy Instagram Comments (the cheaper of the two) they’re 6 to 7 cents per, depending on your willingness to buy in bulk. Followers are, understandably, more expensive. They run you 9 cents per follower and are sold in packages all the way up to 20,000 for a eye-widening $1,800. Finally comments, which you can only get from Buy Instagram Likes, will run you 10 cents per or $10 for a hundred notes.

It’s unlikely (we hope) that you’ll start seeing these sorts of services take off in a big way — “look mommy! 50,000 likes for only $100!” “Not here, sweetie, they’re cheaper at WalMart” — but stranger things have happened. Until likes, comments, and followers show up on store shelves, however, you’ll either have to pony up the cash online or, you know, actually earn them.
